Next Family Destination ..

Today is my last day of working for January. I will start my leave from 28 Jan-1 Feb to visit Brunei. Since my husband want to see how is the market in Brunei, he would like to check it for himself. Just see how is the Package he offered at his website

We will go by land to Brunei with my mother in law and her husband. Its a long drive from Kota Kinabalu to Brunei but I hope for my children they enjoy it. Me and my husband have tried once to Miri by land sometimes in 2001. Ya! its been 7 years and hopefully the road is much better then before. The most exciting part is we will staying at T
he Empire Hotel & Country Club, which I heard from my husband an extravagant suites and 5 star rooms, how was that look like huh!. Just wait and see, I hope I can take a photo of the hotel and the room and share it in my blog.

After my holiday, I will continue with my Medical Leave from 4th Feb to whenever the Doctor give me. Probably a week. So its a long leave for me. That make me lazy to go to work afterwards. Oh ya. I will be admitted to Hospital Likas on 3rd February 2008 (Sunday) my operation has been re-schedule on 4th February. Nothing serious just hope it will be gone after this. Is that simple as it is?.. I dont know.

A Whole Life Lie

I get this story from my friend and i find it interesting story.. Read on then you know

He met her on a party. She was so outstanding, many guys chasing after her, while he so normal, nobody paid attention to him. At the end of the party, he invited her to have coffee with him, she was surprised, but due to being polite, she promised. They sat in a nice coffee shop, he was too nervous to say anything, she felt uncomfortable, she thought, please, let me go home.... suddenly he asked the waiter. "Would you please give me some salt? I'd like to put it in my coffee."

Everybody stared at him, so strange! His face turned red, but still, he put the salt in his coffee and drank it. She asked him curiously; why you have this hobby? He replied: "When I was a little boy, I was living near the sea, I like playing in the sea, I could feel the taste of the sea, just like the taste of the salty coffee. Now every time I have the salty coffee, I always think of my childhood, think of my hometown, I miss my hometown so much, I miss my parents who are still living there". While saying that tears filled his eyes. She was deeply touched.

That's his true feeling, from the bottom of his heart. A man who can tell out his homesickness, he must be a man who loves home, cares about home, has responsibility of home. Then she also started to speak, spoke about her faraway hometown, her childhood, her family. That was a really nice talk, also a beautiful beginning of their story.

They continued to date. She found that actually he was a man who meets all her demands; he had tolerance, was kind hearted, warm, careful. He was such a good person but she almost missed him! Thanks to his salty coffee!

Then the story was just like every beautiful love story, the princess married to the prince, then they were living the happy life... And, every time she made coffee for him, she put some salt in the coffee, as she knew that's the way he liked it.

After 40 years, he passed away, left her a letter which said: "My dearest, please forgive me, forgive my whole life lie. This was the only lie I said to you---the salty coffee. Remember the first time we dated? I was so nervous at that time, actually I wanted some sugar, but I said salt. It was hard for me to change so I just went ahead. I never thought that could be the start of our communication
I tried to tell you the truth many times in my life, but I was too afraid to do that, as I have promised not to lie to you for anything.

Now I'm dying, I afraid of nothing so I tell you the truth: I don't like the salty coffee, what a strange bad taste… But I have had the salty coffee for my whole life! Since I knew you, I never feel sorry for anything I do for you. Having you with me is my biggest happiness for my whole life. If I can live for the second time, still want to know you and have you for my whole life, even though I have to drink the salty coffee again".

Her tears made the letter totally wet. Someday, someone asked her: what's the taste of salty coffee? She replied, “It's sweet.”

Love is not to forget but to forgive, not to see but to understand, not to
hear but to listen, not to let go but to HOLD ON !!!!

Don't ever leave the one you love for the one you like, because the one you like will leave you for the one they love.

Find a guy, who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will stay awake just to watch you sleep. Wait for the guy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in your sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends. Wait for the one who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares about you and how lucky he is to have you. Wait for the one who turns to his friends and says, "…..that's her."

I've been learning how to knit since July 2006. Well it was started when I saw one of my best friend Jura learned how to knit. So I was thinking why not just I started with the basic of knitting which are cast on, knit, purl and cast off. Most of the techniques we learn from the Internet.

After that I went to the yarn shop to get some yarn and buy my first knitting needle size 6mm. So I started to make my first project which was pullover sweater for my boy. I made it and it was satisfying and enjoyable. Well , I know we are living at Asian country which mean most probably warm, but I have a reason to knit for the first place when I started to think of knitting. We have planned to visit my husband's family at The Netherlands so I have to make a warm cloth to both my boy and girl. I finished the first project within 2 weeks time. Its a very simple pattern for beginners.

After I finished with my 1st project, then I started to buy a book about knitting. (once you learn it, you will be addicted). So from that book I saw one pattern that I really want to try which combined 2 colors of yarns. So I tried, It was a cardigan with a hat. Since I only have short time to finished it I did not make the hat and I just knitted the Cardigan. I managed to finished it a few days before we went. Well actually its take almost a month to finished the cardigan.

After a few months I did not do anything, suddenly my mood back again, looking for pattern to knit and here is my third project of knitting sweater, a cute Hoodie for Ethan.

Look at him, what a cute baby..
Hope I can learn more technique in knitting and I am thinking of another knitting project for this year.
The more you practice, the more you get experience and learn something new. Watch out for my next project..
